Holy moly, finally a repeat workout that I've never done, only heard about.... My quads are gonna explode on this one.

Comment #5 - Posted by: gaucoin at March 12, 2007 7:45 PM

Work out at a small gym. Doubt they'll let me take the barbell out on the street to do the lunges. Any suggestions for alternate exercise with same impact? Thanks in advance.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Kevin at March 12, 2007 7:48 PM

Kevin,

I do the walking lunges in my small basement. It may not be the best, but I take 4 or 5 lunges in one direction and turn around and repeat. I figure each stride is about 3 feet for me, so that's about 16 or 17 steps total per 50 feet of walking lunges. It could add a couple extra seconds per round, but I can't complain that it hurts my time. If I wasn't turning around, I'd be doubled over anyway.

champ,
I had the same exact thought. I guess I'm just used to seeing Ross Enamait's burpees...

Comment #8 - Posted by: Steve N. at March 12, 2007 8:00 PM

Nice Coach,
....Let your knee gently kiss the ground on each lunge, that cracks me up.
On round five it's

... leave your knee on the ground and gently go back and pick it up after your through. You guys are the best.

I remember after about 45 minutes of flutter kicks down in Key west and the scuba stud saying .... you may be feeling a slight burn in the thigh area now.....

Have Fun, Train Hard,

Billy

Comment #10 - Posted by: Brendan santa cruz at March 12, 2007 8:16 PM

This is my first week starting Crossfit, and boy is it kicking my a$$! But I love it so far... Just trying to find creative ways of doing the exercises at my commercial gym without getting kicked out. Anyway, on to my question: Is time GOD on a timed workout? Meaning, is it better to loosen up on form and/or drop the amount of weight used to get things done as quickly as possible? Or is okay to take a short rest in between rounds to muster the energy to do things as RXed? There's obviously room for interpretation here on what is a "rest" and what is "loosening up form", but I'm more looking for a general rule of thumb...

Comment #11 - Posted by: Jason at March 12, 2007 8:30 PM

Jason,
The idea is to do the workout with correct form as fast as you can. If that means you need to break up the sets, do it. If you can do the workout without scaling it (lightening weights or subbing exercises) do it and work on improving your time. Hope that helps you out.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Speal at March 12, 2007 8:34 PM

Burpees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thats a lot of Burpees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunges should be easy but the Burpees!!!!!!!!!!

Comment #13 - Posted by: Jared Dame at March 12, 2007 8:59 PM

This was my first WOD (on 7/21/05).

Wild.

Time flies.

Speaking of time, I would love to compare times but I am on the wounded list due to "a high grade partial tear involving the anterior aspect of the vastus medialus muscle at its juncture with the quadriceps tendon with almost complete muscleotendinus disconinuity" - yes i copied that from the MRI.

It's apparently what happens when one slips during a squat clean and drops a barbell on his knee. I am following the working out wounded journal and have put together a list of WOD's from the last 14 h a busted knee. Have fun, I miss most the WOD's but will really miss this one!

Comment #14 - Posted by: fmb at March 12, 2007 9:13 PM

Welp ...

This newbie ain't gonna impress no one - but I did manage to finish this time. In an body shattering 17:45 ... Nice feeling, actually.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Mike Gray at March 12, 2007 10:33 PM

lunges - did 50 STEPS, sets of 10 (less kissing in later sets). I have long legs. 50 feet would have been done in 15 steps.

21 burpees - sets of 7

did 3 reps, 10 min per rep. was not pushing it. had to leave and get other things done. will do better next time. Under 30 min - 29:51

Comment #17 - Posted by: epsa at March 13, 2007 12:05 AM

#12 Brendan, awesome showing. Hey, a good burpee for us is being able to slip a sheet of paper under our feet. You were skying!

BTW one of our fire fighters, Jamie Baer, made it out to HQ to workout last week and commented that the WOD is a lot harder when not all pullups are counted (hah, good for him that slacker). He also said he learned how to kip properlly. Overall a great time.

Been loving the vids but this one is like watching 'Jaws' before going surfing.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Waikele Fire at March 13, 2007 12:34 AM

Horrible. Took the past week off due to bad knee pains following last weeks squats, and ate nothing but junk food (we got a new kitchen installed, so take-away only!). I was also sick with some flu thing, and I guess I'm not quite over it. I only did one round, and that took me 4m:43s to do. Only 3 things gave out on me - knees (lunges not good!), throat/lungs (still hacking cough), and obviously I pulled a heartilage. Not impressed with my effort - I think I spent more time writing my excuses down than I did working...

My Burpee form sucked, though. The pushup portion of it devolved into a twitch, rather than a real pushup. I'll be adding them into the warmup so I can get better at them.

Felt the hangover from the Thruster/Row WOD which I did last night.

As much as this one hurt this morning, I think this afternoon could be worse.

Comment #24 - Posted by: BigDog at March 13, 2007 3:53 AM

Note: No bar, so first walking overheads were with 20 lb dbs. Next 3 were with 15s. Hard to control in 3 dimensions.

As RX'd 18:20. First time doing it. Never thought I would say it, but the overhead lunges with the 45# was a welcome break between the burpees!!! I thought I was going to die, and a light kiss turned into my knee making out with the ground around set 4. Great workout, will definately be able to improve time, lotta sucking wind time in there to take out. Great!!!

Comment #28 - Posted by: Chris Stowe at March 13, 2007 4:12 AM

Had a lucky break to do today's WOD. I'm on the road, so thought I'd have trouble finding a gym. Turns out my hotel has a partnership with a local big-name gym for $5 per day. Since I was so early, I had the large aerobics room and a 45# bar to myself. I paced off 50ft as best I could. Turned out to be about 15 lunge steps. It sucked, but went quickly.

Video took some time to download, so I decided to workout while the computer took its time. Glad I did or I may have completely altered the WOD. Good work to everyone who completes this one.
Only had one Oly bar (being used, of course) so I subbed two 10# DB's. 15:40 with screaming legs afterward. Great workout!

after the first 5 burpees a just laughed because my legs hurt so bad. Loved this workout. My gym thinks im nuts though. I'm taking the O-Bar from the bench rack and bringing it to the other side of my gym where there is an aerobic room to do lunges. I think its great. Hopefully I wont get kicked out though.

19:33 as prescribed. My gym is space challenged -- I could only take 4 to 6 lunges with the bar overhead and then to turn had to lower the bar and turn in vertical and then get it back up. Full CF burpees vs. last time. The pushup just kills me!

Comment #66 - Posted by: Speal at March 13, 2007 8:14 AM

Been doing this for 8 months or so. First time with this monster. hardest WOD yet IMO.

Did 25 lunges per round, probably closer to 75' based on comments above. Really forced myself into good form on both exercises...did not make it all the way through, but my form held until the tank was empty.

4th round knock out during burpees. Too tired to puke.

Comment #67 - Posted by: jfd4 at March 13, 2007 8:15 AM

Hmm I used to be better at burpees. Then again, I wasn't mixing them in with oly bar lunges...

Saved by the bell on this one... had to go to class after 4 rounds of lunges and 3 of burpees.

Which basically means I was way too slow :P

After the vid from two days ago, I got up this AM thinking we'd being doing Fran, which I did, 2:38 improvement from first Fran in early Feb.

Losing 12 pounds of belly works wonders for pull ups. Doing hundreds of pullups also helps a bit. Mine still suck but the progress from 2 months ago is very gratifying.

It's become so quiet around Camp Cupcake these days it catches my ear when there's a shot I can hear. Based on the favorable reviews above, I "look forward" to doing today's WOD.

I did something similar last night; 5 lunges and then 5 over-head presses, repeat with the 45 lb. bar for 100 yards. Picked it up from Mark Twight's Gym Jones site, except he does it something like 400 yards; amazing. They are t-o-u-g-h, and I am sore as heck today.

I'll try these next time, for sure!

THE NOOBIE FILES:

Week One on CF in the books. I am weak and slow. I wanted to do some work outs before posting so now you can all point and laugh.
I am 5'10, 210 lbs. 35 yom. Does not being able to get up after my last bupee count as working to failure?

The facts: 3 sets 19 minutes and a near Pukie experience, saved only by the cool, loving concrete under my cheek.

I WILL do more, better, faster- come to me Pukie!

23:25, substitued 20# for the final three sets of OH Lunge.

31yo male, 186#, sixth crossfit workout of my life. I was motivated to start after SSG Josh Hager's death.

I don't think anyone is going to point and laugh, most (including me), will point and remember: Oh, yeah, I remember my first week. Welcome to the "way harder than it looks/sounds" club. Keep it up!

I have a knee injury and both the impact from the burpees and the bending/weight distribution in the lunges would be really painful. Can anyone suggest some substitutions that are in the "spirit" of this WOD but involve less impact on the knee... or should I just sub in one of the previous WODs that seems feasible?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Turning around in a confined space slowed me down a little bit.
Being out of shape did the rest. The motivation and information from CrossFit is unparalleled. No other program compares.

Found that bringing my feet a little wider than my hands when I was preparing to jump helped quite a bit.
Did burpees using DBs as my push up platform so I didn't let my back round out when squatting down.

~20 min.

Mix of push-up burpees and the dynamic "drop-explode" burpees. Still mastering the drop method; it increases the commitment level significantly with corresponding payoff in reduced time/increased metcon challenge.

Affirming freak status, I moved a bunch of machines out of the way to create a 50' path.

Teaching cycle class in a couple of hours -- worked bottom-to-bottom intervals into class (in the midst of team trials and pyramid of sprints - it's 30 minutes of hell, I'm told.... : ) Planning on hitting WOD afterwards, but will see....had to sub something for rowing yesterday because several people were hogging the rower, and I happened to pick walking lunges...so smart. So, looking forward to an hour of intense interval cycle training, more walking lunges and burpees....to add to #32 - my dad would say, "and therefore pain is good, and extreme pain is extremely good..."

Watching the video, I just wanted to know where the music came from - would be excellent for cycle class - tried to find it online, but no luck (not that particular version anyway...) Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks!

#147 chadlee51---

For the most part I only supplement low glycemic, natural foods for the crap I used to eat. But I do have a Muscle Milk protein shake in between meals when I'm slacking and haven't planned my day well. I've tried about everything in the book and just am not a big believer in supplements. I think a proper diet will provide the natural energy needed to put in an intense workout. Let genetics take care of the rest. IMHO. The website has some good info about nutrition. Coach recommends the Zone diet by Dr. Sears. I'm gonna go buy the book this week and give it a try.

16 Dumbbell Overhead Walking Lunges, 20 lbs each hand (50ish feet)
12 burpees

Completed in: 16:33

I was worried that if I did 21 burpees I would be too slow and lose some of the glycolitic effect, so I lowered it to 12. Definitely killed me. Today was a nice warm day in Davis, so I worked out in my apartment complexes parking lot. Definitely got a few "what the hell?" looks.

Legs very noticeable.
Not real strong.

Am hoping for one of the "Run 5K" or "Row 10K" WODs for tomorrow. Inevitably, this means that it will be some thing like "Helen + Fran + Linda". Annual withholding taxes doubled if you aren't done in 22 miunutes.

From the moment I started warming up I was alarmed, because I had nothing in me. The WOD proved this. 15.30 using two 20# DBs, which is about 1.30 off my time last go-round. I have no idea what happened. Did it in stuffy, overheated hotel gym, but I can't blame my performance on lack of oxygen.

First WOD in a almost a year and if feels good to be at it again. Burpees in sets of 7. Form not too bad. The walking lunges sucked. Had to stop a couple of times during each round to catch my balance. . .

Comment #217 - Posted by: Jon P at March 13, 2007 5:41 PM

This was my first WOD and it was tough. Time was 19:14. I had to modify it a bit since I don't yet have an olympic bar. Used a weighted bar I made out of PVC pipe filled with sand (9.8lbs). My burpees were a combination of the regular ones and ones where I let my knees touch the ground during the push up phase.

I had to stop for a breather a couple times during the burpees and I used an unweighted bar for the third round of lunges. The burpees were what I found to be the hard part of this workout.

Comment #218 - Posted by: Mike H at March 13, 2007 5:41 PM

Tariq #202: When you last did this workout, did you use a barbell or the dumbbells?

If you used the barbell last time, the issue may simply have been the dumbbells. It is considerably harder to support weight overhead using dumbbells rather than a barbell. I'm not sure exactly how it works, but it seems to me that the barbell sort of "connects" the shoulders, whereas with dumbbells they work independently, and thus require more focus and energy to keep in a solid position overhead.

probably less than 50' for the walking lunges.
wanted to take the barbell to the basketball court, but the attendant at the gym didn't like the idea and recommended doing them across the gym. It was fun trying to avoid bumping into all of the machines everywhere.

Stuck in the garage, without space to do walking lunges, so I did overhead lunges with 45 lbs Oly bar, 15 reps instead of the 50 ft walk, followed by 21 burpees

146lbs/30yoa

Modified CFWU x 3

5 Rounds for time:
45lb BB overhead walking lunge, 50 reps
21 burpees (very broken)

Time: 16:54

Another burner, almost as bad as Helen last week. Burpees very broken (major improvement needed), lunges only broken enough to turn around in the 25 foot hallway.

*Used 45lb gripper plates instead of O-bar so I could race my little bro.

And I thought the people who stopped after 3 rounds were wusses. Man, was I wrong--this was much more difficult than I had anticipated.

Missed the last two WOD while I was out of town. Although, to my defense I had just returned from a 7hr road trip back from North Carolina about 30m prior to starting this WOD.

Passing through Tennessee on our trip back we came across an accident. A 20yo girl had apparrently fallen asleep on her way home from UT and ran off the road into a ditch. The car had rolled onto its roof and came to rest against a hill. Her belongings were strewn about within a 20 foot radius of the car. Her windows were all down, and her radio was blaring. When we approached the girl who was wearing her pajamas, she was face down in a pool of blood that was coming from her mouth. She appeared blue, and we were expecting the worst.

I have my EMT license (which actually expires this month I think), my girlfriend is an optometrist, and our friend is a doctor doing her residency at U Penn. The people tending to her when we arrived I'm sure had the best intentions, but were obviously not trained in trauma. They were lifting her head by her hair (without supporting her neck) trying to get a response from her. She was unresponsive to verbal commands and wasn't opening her eyes. I held her head as we rolled her over onto her back. Blood was still oozing from her mouth and covered my left hand. Her breathing was muffled by gurgling from the blood.

We rolled her onto her side while still supporting her neck to allow some of the blood to clear her airway. Our doctor friend performed a quick assessment of her pupils, pulse, and pelvis stability. Others began to look through her stuff to try and find any ID. They were able to locate her wallet and driver's license, checking information, health insurance card, etc.

She seemed to be a very active girl--she had a huge CD collection, several DVD's, volunteered with some sort of theatre/cinema group, worked, as well as going to school. The EMT's arrived within minutes (the 911 operator informed us when we called that they had already received several calls). They took her into the ambulance to intubate her and radioed the LifeSaver Helicopter.

She didn't regain consciousness while we were there. She did appear to wince when they put her on the stretcher which is a good sign. She had pretty bad belt rash from the safety belt, and I believe she must have smashed her face off the steering wheel when the car overturned. Her legs looked pretty beat up from hitting the dash. I doubt she was ejected--she didn't have any facial lacerations. It looked as if she had pulled herself from the car and fell face first with her head facing the car (she was lying on the passenger side when we found her).

The state trooper that worked the scene was a complete ass. He did absolutely nothing except comment that, "She was probably on her cell phone, and that's what caused this." He made this asinine statement after we had found her phone clip and were searching for her phone to call her family. He said he had no way of contacting anyone without a number. Don't cops have radios? He could have called in her tag, her DL #, or used any of the stuff we gathered to do 2 minutes worth of investigating to reach someone she knows.

Our friend has since been trying to see how she's doing by calling the hospital wher she was flown, but at this time has not been able to find anything out. I hope she will be ok.

It really hit home with my girlfriend who is much like this active young girl. She has a history of driving while sleep deprived to either go home (about a two hour drive) or do one of the million things she does. From what we gathered, it looked like the girl was driving home to Chatanooga from Knoxville for spring break.

Please be careful. And, if you see what appears to be an abandoned car, stop and make sure. There could be someone trapped that needs your help. Out of the 6 or 7 of us that stopped to helped, no one actually witnessed the accident. I'm pretty sure someone did, but they didn't stop.

It's sad when we're so caught up in ourselves as a society that we can't possibly find the time to help someone who could be dying on the side of the road. Hell, we don't even have time to use turn signals. It reminds me of this story...

"Once upon a time there were four men named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. But Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it. But Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about it, because it was everybody's job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, and Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody and Nobody did the job that Anybody could have done in the first place. At last report, these four still arguing and the job they were supposed to do still wasn't done."--Author Unknown

Sorry to get so off topic there, but just wanted to share. This experience has certainly opened my eyes, and hopefully yours.

I estimated about 2.5 feet per step on the lunges, so 5 sets of 20.

Lunges were viewed as a nice break b/w the awefull burpees.

I'm doing the WODs three day's behind, so today is supposed to be my rest day. However, I went to the gym today at lunch with one of my co-workers. I've been chatting him up about crossfit and he was interested in seeing what the WODs were like.

145 LB,M, 27yo
3xFor time:
50 FT walking lunges with 30LB barbell
10 burpies.

It took about 5:30 to complete this rather scaled down wod. I'll be performing the same one tomorrow, when I'm actually supposed to be doing it. My goal is to perform it as RXed. I think I can do it.

Round 2 - 6:01
Round 3 - 6:27
Round 4 - 7:29
Round 5 - 7:35

Total - 31:41

The OH Lunges were the easy part (took about 1:30 each round). First time seriously doing the burpees. Found out it's best to go into the squat after the jump. During the thrust, it felt akin to when you're going into a hand stand. I think I'll get better at these as time goes on. Major cardio effect, it's great being the only guy in the gym actually sweating (no need for a towel since I don't use the equipment).

PS: Lost 30 pounds since Jan. 18, granted not having beer on ship could be a factor in that.

Don't have the room at my station or my gym to do this with a barbell so I did:

135# Power Clean - 30 reps for time
Did it in 3:18 (PR) - exactly 2 minutes faster than last time.

Then I did:

115# Power Clean - 20 Reps for time
Did it in 2:18

Talk about bad luck. I got to round 5 without any trouble, then the gym attendant said I had to get off the indoor track because the barbell was an "unjustifiable risk." Ran downstairs with the barbell, finished up on the basketball courts, and ran back upstairs to turn off my timer, and it was dead!

It was probably 25 including interruption, and 20ish without.

Had to do stationary lunges, but I figured a total of 16 got me ~50ft. Burpeeeeeeeeee's sucked ass, only managed 15 for Rds 2-5 because I felt the urge to crawl to the trash can to puke each time. Regardless....great WOD! Wish we would've done this a few years ago when I was still in the Corps....better than stupid boots & ut's runs 5 days per week

m/33/180/6'

NOT as RX'd (but almost)
Sub'd 30lb bar instead of 45, I was a little worried about my knee acting up. Next time, I will do 40 or 45 no problem.

5 rounds
30lb OH Lunge 50 feet
21 Burpees

18:15

Actually think I left a little in the tank on this one. While I was completely gassed at the end, I think I could have pushed harder, especially on the earlier sets. I was gonna be gassed on the 5th round of burpees no matter what, maybe I could have gotten there a little quicker. Will need to be sub 18min next time.

I LOVE BURPEES!
